Go Dry this July for St Vincent's Hospital

St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne is proud to provide world-class cancer care for metropolitan and rural patients.

Our Chemotherapy Day Unit (CDU) provides a calm and compassionate environment for patients to receive daily cancer treatment. The CDU provides approximately 7000 treatments each year. The team are leading the way in cancer clinical trials, providing patients with access to cutting-edge, life-extending therapies.

The 6th floor cancer ward has 20 beds and provides care for patients with higher needs.

Fundraising through Dry July assists us to purchase essential items for the Cancer Centre and for our patients. St Vincent’s patient Nick says, “The hospital is home for a lot of people – so you have to make it as homely as possible.”

That’s why we need your support!

Important Note

Dry July is a fundraising campaign aimed at challenging social drinkers to change their habits for a month and make some healthy lifestyle changes. We would encourage people to drink responsibly and stick to the recommended daily guidelines for the rest of the year. We advise heavy drinkers or people dependent on alcohol to speak with their GP before signing up to Dry July.
